Adult Christian Education
We are called to be lifelong learners by God. CtK offers a variety of adult studies throughout the year. Classes include Confirmation/Inquirers Classes, geared toward people that are new to the Episcopal Church; a Newcomers Class geared to people interested in finding out more about CtK and how to become more involved.
Classes are updated as classes are scheduled.

Education for Ministry
Have you felt a yearning to explore your own faith and the traditions of the Church at a greater depth?
Are you facing times of transition when there may be new opportunities to express and increase your faithful actions? Are you eager to become part of a group that is also committed to growing both their
knowledge and spiritual life? Are you able to commit four to five hours per week to this effort?
Education for Ministry, usually known as EfM, is a certificate program of theological education-at-a-distance of the Beecken School of Theology of the University of the South. Students sign up one year at a time for this four-year program, which covers the basics of a theological education.
It isn’t too soon to think about registering for EfM! EfM will resume in late summer with mentors new to
us, as Deacon Cathleen Carlton shifts her ministry to another parish. EfM provides an opportunity to dig
deeper into the Christian faith by studying the Old and New Testaments, Christian history, and theology
in a small community of learners who reflect together on our faith and the places our own theology
intersects with our life experiences.
Details: Classes meet weekly for two hours for a nine-month academic year (with breaks for Christmas
and Holy Week). The fee is $375 per academic year, which includes textbooks and a resource manual.
Homework is assigned and participation is expected. The time for the 2019-2020 meetings is being
settled among those registering with check and application.
A Continuing Education certificate is available for each year of study, provided the participant has not
missed more than three seminars. The University of the South awards a Certificate to those who
complete all four years.
Materials must be ordered, so please contact mentor Sandra Rode (firstname.lastname@example.org, 520-849-
